Allegedly, Nokia’s phablet is expected to see the daylight in September. We’ve seen it on Bluetooth SIG a few days back and we know it’s expected to launch on AT&T. Now, more rumors are surfacing from Reuters, confirming said leaks and suggesting that Nokia will unleash the new phablet to the market in late-September.
Nokia will schedule an event in New York by the end of September where they will reveal the Windows Phone 8 phablet, according to sources familiar with the plans of the Finnish maker. However, the publication failed to mention any exact release date and the specifications of the so-called phablet.
The folks at Windows Phone Central, through their own sources predict that the event will be scheduled for September 27 and September 26. They suggest that the smartphone will feature a 5-6 inch display with 1080p resolution, quad-core processor, 20MP rear camera featuring PureView technology and will run Windows Phone 8 with GDR3 out of the box.
In case of the tablet, it is expected that it will run Windows RT – a tough to promote operating system for the Redmond giant. Although, earlier rumors suggested that the tablet will be powered by Windows 8.1, which is the sole reason why Nokia delayed the tablet, based on leaks.
The current phablet market is widely dominated by Samsung with its Galaxy series. People did doubt the judgment of the Korean giant when they unveiled their first phablet that has now changed the entire smartphone market. Every manufacturer is aiming for 4.5-5 inch devices as people prefer to watch videos and images on large screen devices.
What’s your call on this one? As the news is now confirmed by Reuters, will we see the monstrous Nokia phablet next month?
